The College of New Jersey Nursing Programs are fully accredited by all appropriate national, state, and specialized/professional nursing accrediting agencies. Accrediting agencies assure that programs in nursing education engage in effective educational practices in the preparation of nurses. A determination of accreditation by an accrediting agency is an indication of confidence in the educational institution to offer a program of quality, deserving of public approbation. (NOTE: Universities and colleges in the United States must hold appropriate regional accreditation in order to be recognized to award higher education degrees). All nursing programs must hold approval from their State Board of Nursing. Voluntary program accreditation by a specialized/professional accreditation body is highly desirable, particularly to assure graduates continued educational and employment mobility. The baccalaureate and master’s Nursing programs at The College of New Jersey are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE – Voluntary Specialized/Professional Accreditation – 2004 – 2018).
The Department of Health and Exercise Science education program is accredited by CAEP.
